Green energy investment opportunities
As the world turns its back on plastic, and climate change becomes a topic for debate, green energy investment opportunities are increasing in popularity.
Green-power, such as water, wind and solar energy was steadily taking off before the global impact of Covid-19. The sector should continue to grow despite the pandemic. The advancement of technology will naturally play a key part in the popularity for investment in green energy. As cars turn electric and battery storage capacities improve, the demand for natural gas and oil will reduce.
Policies on pollution controls, green transportation and waste reduction from the World’s top companies will improve potential returns for the green investor.
How to invest in green
Consider a green ‘satellite’ fund in your portfolio to gain some green energy exposure. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) can be an excellent, low-cost way of gaining exposure in a specific area. It is best not to put ‘all your eggs in one basket’; always keep a good balance to your investment portfolio.
If you have a modern UK pension, SIPP or QROPS, you will be able to invest your pension funds across a range of opportunities. Speak to your adviser to discuss the options for your pension. Review the investments held in your plan to see if your portfolio is invested to your liking and market outlook.
